WARNING: Some of the Content here may be Objectionable to some. I have this blog labeled as "Adult Only" as a common courtesy for those who may easily be offended by Adult topics such as the Truth, Down to Earth topics, realities of living with Ovarian Cancer and/or any life threatening disease that goes along with it; Sexuality, Medicinal Cannabis, Profanity, and of course plenty of unpleasant body functions are also discussed here. This is a very tough battle for which I don't intend to hold anything back on what I am facing.

This blog is very personal and comes from the heart of a real fighting cancer patient who wishes nothing more than to live for all of those I love my own will to live, and my love of life. While sometimes I might be on heavy medication (prescribed by my doctor) and occasionally I might write about things or subjects that one may never even think about or consider; so please consider that as well. Yes; whacked out things might even be found here; but I mean everything in all good intentions.

This blog is not at all intended for the faint hearted, those who lack a sense of humor, have no idea what down to earth means, greedy mean people, and/or those who don't know how to share the world with others, and especially those who are unable to easily put themselves into the shoes of others. This blog is mostly about my journey of living my life in the best ways that I can under the Golden Rule and appreciating all of the GOOD KHARMA that comes my way! Never take anything in this world for granted; especially family and friends!

Chris Cornell was amazing.....

Well its no secret I am in dire need of a good digital camera. What is it with phones? No I don't have the Apple Itouch phone and nor do I plan to get one unless the price and the price of the service goes down. Having a device such as that does not make my day much easier. The people in my life are what I can't live with out. Like my husband, who makes my life so much more enjoyable just to be around him. Just when I think, how can I be so in love with the one man and then I just love him more and more each day.

My husband and I bought tickets online to see Chris Cornell play at the Catalyst in Santa Cruz. I've seen Soundgarden 5 times in my life (1989 in Columbia, SC, 1992 Lollapalooza (it was so good, I had to see it twice) Charlotte N.C., Atlanta, GA, 1994 in Sacramento, 1996 in San Francisco.) I knew I would be blown away because each time I have gone to see him that's exactly what happened. His voice is one of the most amazing voices I have ever heard. He makes those high notes seem so effortless. You can get to know all the words to his songs and even be inspired enough to hit those high notes but they just don't come out the way that he sings them.

My husband and I watched in awe as he sang some of his new songs, some Audioslave and several Soundgarden songs. I think he even sang a Temple of the Dog song too. I can't quite remember, but as we walking back from the bathroom we heard one. Yes, I do have to go quite often but I can still enjoy everything around me despite this.

Chris even had an encore of two great songs after they finished playing their set. Some fans sat there chanting for more and of course he obliged and came out to sing. I haven't seen a whole lot of bands that will come out for an encore at least in the last couple of years. It is quite rare. The last song sung was "Black Hole Sun" and it was performed so exceptionally well that I woke up singing the song in my head this morning. That's when you know you have been to a good show.

Chris Cornell is so tall, lean, and pretty darn sexy. He has this presence about him as moves around the stage so gracefully. I am NOT at all in the market for a new man, but I can at least admire his sleek appearance and especially his voice! He wore this long sleeve white shirt where you could see his muscular sexy chest. My husband laughed at me as I admired the strong sexy presence on stage. My honey was still the sexiest man in the whole joint as far as I was concerned. Yes, we made out a bunch of times and it was great. We had an amazing time together; just the two of us!


Stumble It!

Thanks for that great review - hope you don't mind but I've included it on the Chris Cornell Fan Page on www.chriscornell.org.uk! With a link back to here, of course.

Wow! I am completely honored! thank you so much! I was actually really bummed that this month's Rolling Stone Issue had the top 100 singers and Chris was not at all included when I feel strongly he is one of the best vocalists ever! They must have just forgotten about him or something! Well that's just my humble opinion!

My techniques and treatments work simply for me and may not produce the same results for others. Cancer is a very tricky disease in which it is very different in everyone it touches. No two cancers are the same just as we humans are not the same. What works for me may not work for others.

I love life and expect to live for as long as I can. I intend to use those treatments that do work for me which includes medicinal cannabis. I'm still alive with this disease over 7 years later because of this miracle plant and as long as I have my medicine available; I intend to survive many more years. I hope one day the Federal Government will eventually grow up and be led by true leaders who represent the people and not just coorporations; real people who live by the Golden Rule "treat others how you would want to be treated". I also hope the Government of the US can finally learn to admit that it has made a mortal mistake in making this life saving plant which is provided by GOD and does indeed have the ability to provide all of us with food, fuel, clothing, shelter, and medicine; a mistake that have made is that it is illegal. Yes, it was a mistake out of greed, ignorance, and racism that this miracle plant is illegal. This is a confirmed fact and we should all know and face it.

Cannabis is not at all harmful and in fact quite the opposite. Perhaps our economy can once again grow as it has in the turn of the century by making this life saving plant legal once again.
